You can try to clean the scanner light, but the light does not cast a straight one directional beam. It is more like a flood light, if one spot is blocked it will still cast light on that spot of the paper.
Try checking the print cartridge. Normally if it is an inkjet copier, it will leave a line in one spot if there is a defect in the cartridge or if it is running low on ink.
I woul try another cartridge first, then we can go from there.

My HP laserjet 3015 puts thick dark line down the copy


Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Print something. When the paper gets about 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover. Pull out the toner. Look down at the paper in the printer. Do you see a thick dark line? Replace the toner. No thick dark line, check the fuser for damage.

When you run a copy it leaves a couple thick dark lines on the paper that you copied too.


If you lighten the exposure do the lines fade away ? It most likly needs a drum or a drum cleaning blade. Good luck.

WHEN YOU SEND A FAX IT LEAVES A LINE HALF INCH BLANK DOWN THE RIG


Does it also leave the line when you make a copy? Lift the lid and make a copy cover up. If it is there on the copy then most likely your scanner needs to be cleaned. If it isnt there when you copy, let me know we will go from there.

Leaves about a 1/4 inch space down middle of paper.


That is the cleaning assembly in the drum cartridge.Either something slipped into the cartridge or the blade tucked. Sounds more like something is in the cartridge blocking the drum from both cleaning and charging/
